While it’s not unheard of to find an accomplished software developer who can also write, it’s not exactly a common occurrence. With that thought, I opened up “User Mode Linux” and dug into the first chapter.

When I first used Wine to try to install Windows software on my Linux machine, I found it less than user-friendly. Fortunately there was an application called WineTools to help smooth out the process. WineTools helps you download essential Windows add-ons like DLLs and Internet Explorer -- a necessity for most users, since a great many third-party Windows apps rely on IE's low-level system integrating to implement essential services. But WineTools has not aged well, and using it increasingly causes problems for other Wine applications. Luckily a new project called Wine Doors is picking up where WineTools left off.
